Due to testing supply issues, COVID testing through our office is currently only available for symptomatic patients until further notice.
The CDC has approved the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine for children 5-11 years old. Due to limited allocations from the Maryland Department of Health, we are unable to schedule vaccine appointments at this time. We expect to receive an update within the next two weeks. When we receive notification of our next shipment, then we will open our next clinic. If you have already received your first dose at our office, then we have received the allocation for your booster dose and you should keep your second shot appointment. Please continue to check the THH website, facebook page and portal messages for updates!
Although the CDC has stated that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks in most settings, this does not include healthcare settings. THH Pediatrics still requires all patients and visitors to wear a mask when they come to the office.
Our CHADIS screening process has changed for Well Child Care (WCC). Please check our CHADIS page and fill out your screen prior to your well check up to make your WCC experience more complete.
We have restarted our evening hours on Mondays and Wednesdays, but we will continue to not have Thursday evening and Saturday morning hours until further notice. We are seeing well check ups for all ages. THH will continue to schedule telemedicine visits and appropriate sick visits in the office. In addition, please see our latest news section regarding Coronavirus resources for parents.
